I spent my Friday night in my bedroom, saying thank you to all of the shirts I never wore in 2018. As I reorganized my entire dresser and closet, I realized just how much clothing I’d been holding onto that no longer sparked joy. It was two garbage bags worth of clothing! I’d been holding onto most of it simply because “I paid for it,” however long ago I bought it, and thought that I was wasting money by donating it. Instead, I was probably just wasting a lot of space. And I was wasting a ton of time by folding it and hiding it in my dressers.

You probably already guessed it, I’m one of the millions who’ve become obsessed with “ Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.” How can you not love Marie? She’s sweet, and can make anyone feel like they’re a little bit of a hoarder, but in a way that you won’t be insulted. Since her Netflix show debuted on January 1, 2019, people across the globe have been obsessing over the show.

If you’re done decluttering your home, or still putting it off (for now) you’ve probably already laughed at the countless memes that have cropped up about “Tidying Up.” Here are some of the funniest ones that will surely spark joy in your life.

1. This person knew exactly where to head
